Sometimes people make really stupid decisions. To be fair, occassionally, people make those decisions out of ignorance, but, frankly, most people of voting age have no real excuse for the foolishness which they choose to believe. And make no mistake about it, people who are anti-gun either have an agenda that they are pushing or they are willfully ignorant, so they have no excuse.
Unfortunately, though, the other people in that state or country have to deal with the consequences of the stupidity of ignorant people, as Virginia voters are about to find out. A November 6, 2019 article by CNN gives us the details:
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday said he will reintroduce gun control measures in the upcoming legislative sessions now that Democrats have taken control of the state legislature.
“Getting rid of bump stocks, high volume magazines, red flag laws. These are common-sense pieces of legislation,” he told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.” “I will introduce those again in January. And I’m convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they’ll become law and because of that, Virginia will be safer.”
Democrats took control of the Virginia House and Senate on Tuesday for the first time in more than 20 years. Northam and Democrats will now have an advantage in the assembly to pursue gun control measures that Republicans have pushed against and blocked.
Of course, if you’ve been reading this site for any amount of time, you know that “common sense” gun laws are not common sense. In fact, they don’t make sense at all because they simply make people more vulnerable to harm.
But don’t try to tell anti-gunners that. They’re too busy living in their delusional world where they think that they are getting a utopia. Sadly, like “utopias” such as Stalinist Russia, communist China, and Nazi Germany, utopia usually means lots of people die and everyone else who isn’t in power nearly starves. And it looks like Virginia voters have taken the next step to turn their state into a “utopian” nightmare, starting with taking the guns.
Of course, that’s how those nightmares always start.
They’ll just have too do what our forefathers did before and during the revolution, hide them and if they come for them at your house etc, well lets start the next revolution/civil war! The next shot heard around the world.
On June 29th 1863 my ancestors elected to separate their family and loved-ones from the ignorance displayed in VA by the above news? article. As a native-born WEST Virginian I proudly again commend my ancestors for their intelligence and foresight.
Wonder if this Governor? took an oath to support the Long-forgotten Constitution of the US which STILL includes the 2nd Amendment which he has seemingly chosen to ignore.
Yep-good point. When confiscation starts, go after him for violating the oath.
I have to agree. We will not do away with the Second Amendment, period.
Get the lawsuits ready in advance. Laws this stupid are *always* abused, sooner rather than later. Get as much of the suit as possible set up, ready to go, and then watch for the first case of abuse.
When Guns Are Outlawed ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS!!! Virginians WAKE UP, DO NOT LET THEM TAKE YOUR GUN RIGHTS.
This report is not true. Whoever wrote it is trying to say VA unanimously agreed to give up their 2nd amendment rights……..Not true. Yes, Northam is trying to confiscate guns, but he is meeting resistance from every conservative in the state. They are working hard to keep the right to defend their families and country from the liberals who are trying to take them away. It has already been proven the recent election was riddled with voter fraud. I must also say the liberal influence in VA has come from liberals who have trickled in over the past decade and seeks to usurp the indigenous conservative Virginians. Virginians will never give up their guns….they will fight. Our forefathers in the great Commonwealth of Virginia fought and died protecting our rights and many Virginians were original authors of our US Constitution, so taking the guns from VA will be harder than they imagine. There will be lots of bloodshed when the issue of confiscation takes place. I am a Virginian now in TN, so I know what kind of people populates that great state and my family is still there. They already have petitions in the works and other legal methods which are gaining momentum as we speak. Gov. Northam is hated vehemently and thus unpopular from the start-I expect a major up-rising and there are many states who will also come to their aid if needs be. The start of a civil war in VA–could be!
So why did this clown get elected
and just exactly WHO is going to be that FIRST person to fire that second shot heard around the world?
Stumped. And just dumb
Well folks you can watch and learn what a Democrat president will door try to do in 2020 by watching the down fall of VA.
Yep, the lunatics are running the asylum, or should we say are running the government. Us (relatively) sane people are in the same page with all that. Why not bring some real knowledge to the forefront? Why not enlighten the ignorant with knowledge of original intentions of the Founders? Or write about the history behind their delusions? Most of the ignorant have been lied too about these things.
I have a very pop assault rifle (Simi auto) that at this this time is worth 6500.00 is the buy back going to come anywhere close to this.
@WP: GEE! Why wonder? You will get a BIG $25 to $50 dollar “gift card” for your $6500.00 SemiAutomatic “assault” rifle that uses a magclip that can shoot 30 bullets in less than 1 SECOND! (SIC)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But think of how much safer Virginia will be once only the criminals and a short- staffed police force will be armed, I’m sure that the right thinking Virginians will disarm the bad guys by reminding them that the private ownership of firearms is illegal, and that someone could be seriously hurt by the nasty things.
I have been saying a lot of things for a long time and I often use the word Utopia in reference to the future view that liberals have for this country. Even if they manage to invade our homes and violate our individual rights and collect up all the guns they don’t want us to have and then eventually all the other guns because they deem them still too dangerous or violent, it will not guarantee safer schools or prevent rapes, muggings or murders.
And even if there are only a few guns floating around in the hands of criminals, are we to believe that our political leaders are going to give up or deny themselves armored vehicles and armed security teams when they leave their well guarded, gated communities?
Anyone willing to take things from others, lock stock and barrel, is not going to play fair. They are abusing their power and so now they fear social resistance or a possible civil war. Why don’t they just live and let live and focus on helping the mentally ill, the homeless, the underclass and allow police agencies to adapt and improve instead of using them as pawns and then trying to depict them as villains. They use diversions and subterfuge, so the weak minded are confused and can only relate to their “feel good” speeches and promises and are blind to their lies.
There are some really stupid people out there, supporting and enabling the liberal socialist, but the question is when, where will we see the tipping point and who will take action against this new utopia. Or will we become a country where those in power live well and run like cowards when the crap hits the fan. We the people are the ones who’ll suffer the most if they get their way.
Well it looks like VA needs to learn the hard way. Let them take all the guns away from responsible adults. They will soon learn exactly what Dianne just said in her comment. When that happens then the rest of the country just send all their anti-gunners to VA to live. But it will wake up the country not to make the same mistake.
We will be safer if our guns are Bought back? . . . Uh, WHAT?!? Are the criminals and TYANNICAL governments going to just WALK away? NOT!!!! Virginia just signed away it’s 2nd Amendment RIGHTS. I’m SURELY glad that I don’t live there. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).
What BOTH parties need to learn is: legislation such as this NEEDS to be left up to the VOTERS not the “lawmakers”! Each party says they’re following “the will of the people”! How the hell do they even know the will of the people when they have never listened to anyone but their own buyers? They only listen to their party, major campaign contributors or “Big_____ (fill in the special interest)”, but never to the people they are supposed to represent. Our congressman (R) likes to hold “town hall” meetings a couple of times a year, ostensibly to lend an ear to his constituents concerns. However as soon as he is back in DC, he votes whichever direction the money or the party points him to regardless of the peoples wishes!
They’re coming to take away OUR guns They’re coming to take away OUR guns Ha Ha HE HE HO HO To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes their coming to take away our guns HA HA
they ant taking sheet
Leave no paper trail.
Buy good used, privately. No gun shops, no information, no carry permits.
Keep your business private.
This way the gun grabbers don’t have a map to your front door or know what you may or may not have.
Learn to reload or know someone who does & does a good job. No records. No paper trail.

The states have no control of the bill of rights. The bill of rights was the price the states required for ratifying the constitution. Any change in the bill of right destroys the constitution
The people in Virginia already voted these anti-Constitutionalists into Office. I know people that sold their homes and left New York, and New Jersey to get away from those kinds of laws, and moved to Virginia, and the Carolinas, to preserve their gun rights. They moved to States that, until, recently, respected the Constitution. But, over time, more and more bills found their way to the Governor’s desk, which were signed, and became law, taking more and more freedom away from the people. People, in general, are more ignorant of their Constitutional rights, and what they are losing, regardless where they are from, and where they live. If they have Drag Queens in Austin, Texas, what is the point of moving to Texas? Austin is still in Texas, and that’s the point. There is no one good place to move to anymore. Conservatives have failed miserably at conserving anything, as far as our rights and National culture. The Country has basically rotted away morally, socially, economically, and politically since the end of World War II. So, what did they save, or conserve? Look at movies that come on every Thanksgiving, such as, “It’s a Wonderful Life”, and “Miracle on 34th Street” and look at the people in those movies, and the overall culture that they shared, and then look around at what we have today, and then you will find it hard to believe that we are in the same Country. When is enough, enough?
The Idiots in Virginia deserve to lose Everything!!! Don’t feel sorry at all. More proof that Americans are too Stupid to be allowed to vote.
Virginia is ruled by the Northern and Tidewater area. That’s where all our tax money goes and they decide who will be what. We are suppose to have one vote per person and that what I had. I am not stupid but I suggest you think before you speak and we are better off if you chose to live somewhere else.
Well, they obviously aren’t too bright since they voted Demonrats into office since the main goal is to control every aspect of their lives and they’re too stupid to understand that. Virginia will be the next Mexifornian slum lords.
If you took a moment to review 2019 election results you would see that the majority of the Virginia state map is still RED county by county. Unfortunately, it is the major cities, Like Richmond, Charlottesville, and Northern Virginia, that have become liberal BLUE, just like other major cities through out the US. These large population centers force the voting results in their direction. There is NO state electoral college in VA. In addition, there were over 10 seats that went uncontested, because there was NO Virginian Republican party candidate to even vote for. Good luck to all of you outside Virginia. The liberal tide with outside state funding could be rolling into a population center near you. We now have an uphill battle here in VA.
